A Met Office weather warning is in place in Portsmouth this weekend, with gusts of up to 50mph forecast across the south of the UK.
In the last few days we’ve had periods of blazing sun, torrential rain and high winds – and the unpredictable weather is showing little sign of stopping.
The yellow-level weather warning, for strong winds, is in place for the rest of today and covers most of England and Wales.
The strong gusts are expected to cause travel disruption, and there could spray and large waves on seafronts.
Hovertravel cancelled services on Saturday due to the ‘adverse weather conditions’.
Power cuts have also been reported in the Chichester area and in the SO32 postcode area.
